Spring Decor 2005
This year marks my first new year with a place on my own. I finally purchased over the apartment that I have been renting from the landlady last year. It is nice to have a place of my own. I can decorate it as I like to usher the lunar new year.
I spent the whole evening yesterday to fengshui-ing my living room. I had to rearrange my furniture to avoid facing West, where the Grand Duke of Jupiter (Tai Sui) resides this year. Who is this Duke bloke? I don't really know but he will bring serious bad luck if offended. One shall not face him directly or suffers.
Incidently another annual affliction - the 3 killing (Sam Sart) is also in the East. One must not have one's back facing Sam Sart or it will stab from behind. So, I have arranged my sofa and TV in away that I face East when I watch TV. I have Grand Dukey supporting me from West to face-off with Sam Sart at the East.
One more feng shui menace is the Five Yellow, residing at Northwest. I have got a cure for this - 5 Element Pagoda. It is 5 inches tall, pointy and made of brass. Five Emperor coins and some garden soil must be placed inside the pagoda. Got mine from a little Feng Shui shop at Jalan HS Lee for RM70; but if you buy it from Lillian Too's World of Feng Shui, it will set you back RM118. Now you know why that Ah So is getting filthy rich!
I also decorated my home with pussy willows, lucky bamboos and auspicious CNY decoration to welcome the good chi of the coming CNY. (See pictures)
Haha..so much of Feng Shui lesson or else I will be told to change my blog name ot Feng Shui with Passion. I am not an expert but I like to dabble in Feng Shui as it is fun and I guess it is one of the ways for me to get in touch with my Chinese heritage. Can you apply Feng Shui in running? Maybe! I will explore this topic in my future blog.
OK. Lunch time almost over. I guess this will the last blog for the Monkey year. Will be going back to hometown this weekend. Yes! It is the time of the year again, when I join thousand of Chinese in Klang Valley in an exodus back to the our respective hometown to celebrate Chinese New Year. I have already packed my new year goodies and to spend time with my mummy, daddy and sisters at home.
Wishing everyone celebrating CNY a Happy and Prosperous New Year! Gong Xi Fa Cai! Xin Nian Jin Bu! and Happy Holidays for the rest!!
